DayBack is hiring

We’re building things in JavaScript, Firebase, and Salesforce. And we’re helping our customers rethink their schedules and take their day back. If you can get behind that, we’re hiring.

JavaScript developer – intermediate

The work

We are seeking to hire one or two intermediate level developers to contribute to the next versions of DayBack Calendar. This is mostly front end development in Angular and plain old JS. The calendar connects to a number of different backends, so if REST is your thing, you could contribute there too.

Our requirements are flexible but our standards are high. We ask that you have excellent communication skills, a sense of curiosity, and keen attention to detail. Pride of craftsmanship and the ability to follow established design patterns are also important. Other nice-to-have skills include familiarity Firebase and/or Salesforce experience. (You don’t have to be familiar with our stack–it’s designed to get you up and running quickly–but if you want to see how we’re doing things we’ve described some of our tooling here: https://github.com/seedcode/vagrant-base-config)

What’s an intermediate JS developer?

You’ve likely done this before and this wouldn’t be your first job in tech. You can work in someone else’s code and extend their patterns without having to reinvent everything in a pattern you’re comfortable with (though when you have opinions about patterns you can argue for them). You may have used Angular 1x on a project before but that doesn’t need to be your thing.

General information

Location: We’re an all-remote company, so you’ll be working at your own place, but in close contact with our team over phone, video, Slack and in person when it works out. (Despite the current appearance of our team, we are committed to building a more diverse company.) We prefer folks in states where we have other employees, meaning WA, OR, and CO, but we’re open to expanding that for the right candidates.

Benefits: SeedCode offers full-time employees a 401k with employer match, a health plan with 100% employee coverage and a contribution towards covering additional family members, a generous vacation plan, and a yearly allowance for purchasing your own gear.

How to apply

Please send a note, your resume, and both work samples (below) to [email protected] along with any questions you may have.

Samples of your work

Software sample: We’d love to see some of your work, your side project, or whatever best represents where you’re at with JS.

Writing sample: Communication (and empathy) are the keys to building great tech. So we want to know that you can write well. Please send us a paragraph or two about some issue on which you’ve picked a side . This doesn’t have to be something you’re passionate about and it needn’t be political. It could even be a coding issue, or some mundane item you’ve changed your mind about. We find that we’re often laying out the pros and cons of competing approaches to our customers or team members, so we’d like your writing sample to do that for us: pick any topic you’d like, and help us decide between two options.
